A selection of the school’s key policies may be found below. Please contact the school if details are required of any policies not included here:
Bullying is action taken by one or more children with the deliberate intention of hurting another child, either physically or emotionally. Bullying is wrong and damages individual children. Therefore, we do all we can to prevent it, by developing a school ethos in which bullying is regarded as unacceptable and intolerable. We aim, as a school, to create a safe and secure environment where all can learn without anxiety.

Child Protection / Safeguarding Policy
St. Peter’s recognises its legal duty under the Education Act 2002 and the 1989 Children Act and takes seriously its responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all children.

If parents have concerns regarding their children’s education, it is important that these are addressed quickly and effectively. It is the school’s firm belief that children will never flourish if they are not happy and therefore any issues at school or at home which is affecting, or has the potential to affect, their welfare should be shared by parents and school staff.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy
If school or parents/carers have concerns about a child’s progress, there is a clear procedure that will be followed. This is set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice. This is a document, produced by the Department for Education, which provides guidance and advice on the identification and assessment of special educational needs. The latest SEND Code of Practice was brought before Parliament and made statutory in 2014. The school’s SEND policy takes full account of the 2014 Code of Practice; it has recently been reviewed and updated.
